As Apollo Nida patiently awaits his July 8 guilty plea sentencing to conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud, earlier this week the 'Real Housewives Of Atlanta' star stopped by Atlanta radio station V-103 during an appearance on “The Ryan Cameron Show,” where he discussed his recent encounter with T.I.
And although the pair’s parking lot meeting, which was in response to Nida’s tweet comparing his plea deal to the rapper’s previous federal plea deal, was resolved on camera, the 35-year-old reality star disapproved of T.I.’s approach.
“First of all, I know Tip. I thought he was coming up being a man, being supportive because he’s been through that same situation. That’s what I thought,” he explained on the radio show. “He was hostile, so I jumped back a little bit and put my phone in my pocket, because if this thing is about to go down then let me get ready…”
“At the end of the day, I shouldn’t have put nobody’s name in it. That’s my fault. So in some light, I brought this on myself. But Tip knows how to get in contact with me. If this was an issue, you just don’t make it an issue right there in public and try to sit there and try to make it a ploy just to boost whatever you got going on at the time…I’m a real humble person at the end of the day. I can’t tolerate disrespect. I really played that situation real humble. I was humiliated by it. I didn’t even know the cameras were rolling. That is not how men handle the situation.”
In addition to revealing how he felt humiliated by T.I., Nida also shared his thoughts on what his wife, Phaedra, should do while he’s incarcerated.
“I think Phaedra, in a perfect world, should be supportive as a wife should be...But if she chooses to derail from the plan, then that's what she chooses to do,” he said. “Apollo is prepared for whatever happens in life. Whatever's been thrown at me, I deal with it. I would like to say I would want her to stay around and do what a wife should do. But tomorrow’s not promised."
